Abstract [en]

My architectural interventions are based on existing social structures as well as on local traditional building techniques of Vila Santana do Cafezal in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. My aim is to develop these structures and techniques in several sustainable ways focusing on rainwater collection, in order to strengthen the place ecologically and the community socially – both internally and towards the authorities.

Abstract [sv]

Mina arkitektoniska ingrepp baseras på existerande sociala strukturer samt på lokala traditionella byggtekniker i Vila Santana do Cafezal i Belo Horizonte, Brasilien. Mitt mål är att utveckla dessa strukturer och tekniker på flera hållbart sätt med fokus på uppsamling av regnvatten, i syfte att stärka platsen ekologiskt och samhället socialt - både internt och gentemot myndigheter.
